  1. Due to issues with itemization and hunters, it has been decided that rogues would only use maces, daggers, fist weapons and thrown weapons.

    Due to issues with itemization and mages and warlocks, it has been decided that rogues would only use maces and fist weapons and thrown weapons.

    Due to issues with itemization and paladins and shamans, it has been decided that rogues would only use fist weapons and thrown weapon.

    Due to unfair issues regarding the range capacities of rogues, it has been decided that rogues would only use fist weapons.

    I lol'd.

  2. I love the fact that I can sit in the flagroom and sap the flagrunner right as he or she grabs our flag and then scream to the defenders that I found a filthy alliance dog trying to steal from us in WSG.

  3. I've killed some very skilled rank 14 rogues, but that's because I've had a Mortal Strike or Whirlwind land through Evasion...which is VERY lucky. An Overpower every 6 seconds is not enough to kill anyone.

    Lol. You'd get charged as a heretic on the official rogue forums if you said that, but I know better. Most rogues are all, "OMG, you use evasion against a warrior!? OVERPOWER, NUB!" and stuff.

    The smart rogue's reasoning: It's better to eat an overpower and dodge the other attacks, than to hold off evasion from being afraid of an overpower which we all know will eventually arrive.

  4. I swear. This game is like fucking crack. I just came back to it a few weeks ago, blech. I feel dirty. Oh well, I'm having fun, that's all that matters.

    Comin' in to the conversation...I play a rogue, end-game raiding guild...I have to say, I do agree that rogues need a little more than some tweaking. Every class has some horrible way to counter us. As ellywu2 said earlier, yes, to beat most other classes, the rogue needs to be 100% on top of his game. I can pull it off usually, but even then, sometimes the opponent is so amazingly geared that even then it doesn't matter. Ever been killed by a warrior in less than 4 seconds flat, EVEN when you pop off a Cheapshot AND a Kidneyshot? Yeah. Suckage. And I'm in more than half-epics here.

    The thing about rogues VS several classes is that they can be easily kited if they don't have certain cooldowns up. This applies to Warlocks, Mages, Priests (emphasizing shadow priests), and Hunters the most. Fuck, if I don't have my cooldowns and I start getting kited? I just /sit. That's how horrible it's come to be. Druids can shapeshift any time out of it, warriors can intercept, shamans don't need to give a crap because they can heal and toss their own bloody spells...etc etc.

    My opinion is that rogues are TOO dependant on our cooldowns. With all of them up, we can do well for ourselves, and fight on equal or better level. But the fact remains that we can only do this every 5 minutes.


  5. 1) is cosmos still the de-facto UI mod? if not, what else is good, and where can i get it?

    Cosmos went down the tubes ages ago.

    I suggest CTmod, or the Insomniax Compiliation. Get Titanbar too, because it's nice.

    BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GET CT-RAIDASSIST. I AM 100% FREAKING SERIOUS. Even if you don't get the full CTmod suite, CTRA is a fucking must.

  6. After months of playing, being level 60, occasionally running MC and BWL...

    ...I'm rather tired of this game. Sure, it was addicting for a while...but...it's just so BORING now. Doing the same damn instances all the time...and not making any PVP progress because of well-organized, PVP-epic'd alliance "A-Teams" ruling the damn battlegrounds, and horde's unorganized level 60ers...

    Meh. I decided I'm gonna drop this...it's just not worth the bloody trouble anymore. Auto Assault however, looks very very, very very very fun. Plays as such too ((playing the free preview)). It's a little buggy (lol, vehicle pun), but I can work with it. It's a nice change from Warcraft at the very least.

  7. ...and my heartseeker // tribal guardian are starting to bore me.

    I told you so. :lol:

    Jog my memory please kthx

    Joggage initiated.

    Mecca, you'll learn to love that dagger, heheh, but I remind you...it won't be so effective come level 60...facing things equal your level will make you yearn for something better, whether it be a Lobotomizer, a Gutgore Ripper...anything.
  8. Farming...farming...

    Well, the place I farm the most is the plaguelands. Specefically Tyr's Hand in the Eatern part...surprisingly...there's usually 0 people there. The times I have went, I've always been alone. Always. The mobs are mine to pwn. Occasionally I visit the tower south of Hearthglen in the Western Plagues...the spellbinders there sometimes drop the fabled Crusader enchant recipe. Sells for hundreds of gold on the AH's.

    Thing is, I don't have the patience to farm. So I'm broke no matter WHAT I do.


    That was fun.

    Me and some other guys decided to go through Shadowfang Keep 2 times out of boredom, xp, and useful items. In these runs, our Mage recived Feline Mantle, Odo's Ley Staff, Belt of Arugal, and Robes of Arugal, all blue items. Damn right he was grinning from ear to ear.

    For someone of appropriate level, he just went from casual to complete and total ownage. Serious, yo.

  9. hell, i'm on the alliance and I like seeing night elves die too. >_>


    Hee, death noises. :roll:

    EDIT: On a sidenote, new tier .5 rogue set looks FTW. Even though this pic doesn't have the new helmet with it.


  10. I'm so hopelessly addicted.

    Let me sum up WoW (and probably any other MMO) for you:

    Get weapons

    Get armour

    Go to higher level area to get better weapons and armour

    Get weapons

    Get armour

    Go to higher level area to get better weapons and armour



    For me, it's a little different.

    Get Weapons

    Get Armor

    Go to high-level area to get better weapons and armor

    Beat up alliance and duel friends to have fun


    That sums it up for me. It's so sickeningly satisfying seeing a Night Elf die. Especially the priests.

    F'ing priests.

    ((This is Shinji XJ, by the way. I changed my name after a little thought.))

  11. Yeah. Kurinnaxx hits like a mofo. My guild and I went into AQ20 and got him down to 8% eventually before we gave up. =/ Problem that last run was 2 unlucky sandtraps in a row...wiped out our 2 other tanks. The mortal strike effect he dealt to our main tank reduced healing enough to kill him in the end, and after that...well, we bit it.

  12. I just recently re-activated my account. I'm an Undead Warlock by the name of Vairnoul on the Dark Iron server. I've just hit a nasty snag, as I can't seem to get any quests done by myself, nor find anyone to help. I probably just don't know what I'm doing. Much more practice is needed on my part.


    Undead Priests are going to look awesome as angels then.

    I think they're all gonna use the same model...hell I don't even know if they're gonna use a model. I think the talent mentioned something about an angel or something though.

  13. The new priest talents are pimp. I like the one where you're rezzed as an angel for 10 seconds and then can promptly cast healing spells for free for 10 seconds...talk about useful.

    Aside from that, Blizz best keep the stuff coming...I might actually go and try out EQ2, if things stay boring right now. :?

  14. I fancy myself as a warrior killer. Let me guess Shinji, you are a hemo rogue?

    Anyway, I only have 3 epics: Bloodfang Hood, Brutality Blade, and Darkmoon Card Heroism.

    Yeah, that I am. Switched to it for the benefit of the raid. That, and I'm getting my stunlock down good. The extra subtlety skills are nice too.

    I used to be combat, though, so I know what you mean. But even as a combat rogue, the warriors with epic two-handers and mortal strike and whatnot...ugh. Just...scary.

    "You dodge.

    Warrior overpowers you for OMGWTFBBQ!

    You proceed to die a horrible death."

    I hate them.

  15. From what I hear, tier 0.5 armor sets and weather effects, bundled along with the priest changes, are going to be the main attractions of 1.10.

    Want to know my opinion?

    Weather effects and tier 0.5 armors obtainable by small groups = HOO-FREAKING-HAH!

    I can't wait for 1.10 now.

    I hear ya there. I've had a 60 Mage and Priest without epic gear for a very long time because I didn't have the time/schedule to do MC/BWL/etc(and I'm really not very interested in 40-mans anyway). This is the best news I've heard in a long while.

    Yeah. I, myself, have 5 epics...Bloodfang Hood, Nightslayer Shoulderpads, Nightslayer Gloves, Offhand Warblade of the Hakkari, and Darkmoon Card: Maelstrom.

    The rest of my armor? Yeah. It's crappy.

    REALLY crappy.

    This'll give me the opportunity to strengthen myself up, make myself a force to be reckoned with...I've got the skill, it's just that in this game, in some situations? Gear > Skill, sadly. It's saddening but true...

    ...Though the fun part is I can STILL own any cloth-wearer. :lol: It's the plate targets I have trouble with.

  16. Weird update.

    I got "das boot" from the MBoM. Apparently, they didn't enjoy me concidering doing stuff with real life friends instead of with them. Coupled with me rolling on stuff they said "everyone roll" and winning it, and other interesting condradiction, I figured I must just have pissed someone in the guild council and they had to justify their decision.

    Which doesn't really make sense because if they didn't want me, they could just have kicked me. Oh well, guess I wasn't made to be with them. In a sense, they were a bit annoying. Some of them complained that when I joined, I organised a lot of runs to go to places where I wanted stuff and stopped organising them after I had what I wanted.

    Go figure, I'm not the only one who needs UBRS, and frankly, the last time I organised a blood run, it turned out that only one of the people interested needed it.

    Oh well, guess I'll fly solo for a bit.


    That freaking sucks man, I'm sorry. If a guild can't handle some of it's members having a social life... ::shakes head::

  18. But I now have the lead in DKP. :)

    That's always a good feeling, ain't it? :D

    Update from Bloodscalp, the MBoM Report:

    Enter the Dragon

    ::Really long Onyxia fight story which I thoroughly enjoyed::

    Oh, snap, man. Congrats on downing Onyxia! I just got my Bloodfang helm recently too, and I agree, it looks kickass. And yeah, I agree with you on several points you brought up. The Onyxia fight DOES feel epic. It's far better than any crappy MC boss...except maybe for Rags. He's good too, with his flamboyant entrance and whatnot, and his constant tauntings.

    Speaking of which: the joint-group I raid with commonly just downed Rags for the first time last night. Legplates of Wrath, which went to the maintank, some caster leggings, and a Perdition's Blade which went to a very lucky dagger rogue, is what I remember. I wasn't there for the first downing of Rags, though. ::le sigh:: I couldn't make it, sadly. Sharing the family computer FTL. :cry:

    On a better note, Blackwing Lair this Wednesday for us! Gonna have a go at the first boss. Wish us luck!
